Dallas is experiencing phenomenal inner city growth, unlike any time period before. This urban infill is “remaking the city” on every front and opening up new opportunities that many never could have envisioned. Will the infill of the inner city Dallas be a good or bad thing? Largely underway, we are seeing simultaneous infill in Oak Cliff, the Trinity River Corridor, Deep Ellum, Ross Avenue, the Design District and multiple urban neighborhoods at all scales and types. Housing, retail, restaurants, office and streetscape—what are the traits that make good infill and connectivity to community? This promises to be a lively discussion with on the front line developers as well as designers of these spaces. Sometimes risky, sometimes opportunistic, the future fabric of our city for the next 50 years is being made NOW.
